Title: Very rare Romantics 21 and Over video on Youtube.
Post by Rob on Nov 6th, 2008 at 10:33am
I discovered a very rare Romantics video, on Youtube. It shows the band lipsyncing to the album version of 21 And Over, in a pretty cheesy but very kool video! It is a rare glimpse of the band during the National Breakout era.

KgRamone sent me this video several years ago, but now someone has posted it on Youtube.  Just go to Youtube and search the term "The Romantics on Musi-video show."

I love that song.  Maybe the band will resurrect it for their next tour...they could do that running-in-place thing...

Very cool. Maybe Oldfriend or somebody else could answer this question.
Did they tour to support this album, National Breakout? I know Mike left after it was recorded and Coz was called in to replace him.I have seen pictures of every tour they did after recording an album,except this one.I even have pics of them wearing the pink leathers from the Strictly Personal tour,but have never seen any pics of them promoting National Breakout.

I have seen several pics of the band supporting National Breakout, and I believe Coz had replaced Mike in the photos.

I'm pretty sure that I saw them on tour at the time NB came out.  I was a college drunk at the time, so my memory isn't perfect...but they were wearing the white/black snakeskin leather suits for this tour.  I'm pretty sure that Coz was there.  And I know they played "Tomboy" and "Stone Pony".  Wally has a great memory for this type of thing--I'm sure he could confirm it.

Kevin--I would love to see a picture in the pink leathers.  Can you post one?

Glad this finally made YouTube -- here's hoping the videos for "Forever Yours" and "National Breakout" also will make it soon. They appear to have been filmed on the same day or thereabouts in the same location, but with different "storylines" (such as they were). I always loved the "Forever Yours" video because it features Wally courting some young lass, and the rest of the guys walking around in sailor suits (as I recall) kind of giving him moral support along with backing vocals. Cheesy, but fun.

Sadly, the VHS tape on which I have these now is in terrible condition, rendering them almost unwatchable.

I was lucky to see the band in 80 (i believe) in support for NB. They played at Masonic Temple in Detroit. If memory serves me it was a two night stand. Black leathers, Coz on Guitar with Wally, Jimmy and Rich Cole. Opening act was The Torpedo's. Great show, loud and rockin. Coz played a Les Paul and beefed up the live sound a bit. Setlist was nearly ALL of NB and most of the first album. They did The Last Time (stones) for an encore! Opened with National Breakout, highlights were Stone Poney, 21 and Over, Forever Yours, Till I see you again and the obvious hits (what i like, look in your eyes, night like this). The Romantics were really on fire back then. On the verge of something huge..ie..... Hope that gives some insight! And....jars some memories  8-)
